Yes, _if_ you make sure that the rest of kdelibs doesn't use those classes.
For instance we can't move K3ListView yet since at least KFileDialog uses it,
and probably other things too (kdeprint?). But since I renamed it already to K3,
it's clear to everyone that it's a future-kde3support class, and that it shouldn't
be used in new code. We can certainly do the same for any deprecated class
(plus moving to kde3support if the class isn't used in the rest of kdelibs).

I don't see why. It's perfectly possible to have different compilation flags
for kdelibs/kde3support than for the rest of kdelibs.
